Olympus Escrow will be discussing Los Angeles County 2018 1st quarter Real Estate market report and predictions on February 20th from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. (137 E. Huntington Dr. Arcadia, CA 91006). No matter what your real estate goal is, you need to understand what the real estate market is doing now and where the market is heading. As a real estate professional you need to be able to explain this market and these trends to your clients. In 2017 we thought everything would change but it stayed the same through most of the year. Housing inventory was low, buyers are still writing multiple offers, interest rates stayed about the same, we see new construction going up everywhere but for the entry level buyer there is not a lot of options to choose from. You will learn about what the market has been doing, who is buying, who is selling, where the opportunities are, and what’s going to happen next. For more information call or text 323-215-9836 and ask for Daniel Andrade.
